Voting Marginalized

Stats about rally numbers are meaningless. The real stat to watch in November is who gets to vote. And so far, 2020 has been rough for democracy. Next stop, Kentucky. “In a typical election year, Kentucky has about 3,700 polling sites, according to most reports. When Election Day arrives on 23 June, there will be just 200 polling sites across the state — with some of those sites having to serve upwards of 600,000 residents.”

+ “Republicans, Democrats, state officials, grandmothers, first-time voters, the politically engaged, the anti-institutionalists—pretty much the only thing they could agree on was their doubts about the integrity of our democracy.” The Atlantic: Why Americans Might Not Trust the Election Results.
